My main goal which to my shame is the same goal that i had last year which is getting my house decluttered but more specifically my living room.
I would feel so much more at peace if I could walk into my house without clutter or open a drawer, cabinet etc. and not have something fall out at me.
I wouldn’t be embarrassed when people come…[Read more]

Today there will be a winner and a loser during the Super Bowl but there are no losers with caregiving because the caree has a person who loves them enough to sacrifice for them and the caregiver is a winner because of their sacrifice and they have the love and support from caregiving.com
Jane, your two blog posts leave me speechless. Adding anything at all would take away from the courage, persistent hope, determination, and fierce love you share as a family. Incredible.
Thank you for sharing this story about your precious and very special daughter. I wish we could get more of our “why’s” answered in this lifetime.
Jane–I’m so glad you shared this anniversary with us. I recently read that writing out a story, as many times as we need to write it, is an important part of our healing process. As a long-time reader of your blog, I can see so much healing in the two blog posts. You are doing a great job caring for Nicole. You are simply great.
Thank you Denise…. I can’t tell you how much your kind words mean to me.

My daughter Nicole doesn’t take a shower every day. It is usually every other day. It takes a lot of energy for her to do so and if she is in a lot of pain from her infusion site (which is in her thigh) it is hard for her to get in the shower. If her fatigue is high that she doesn’t either.
I do buy her baby wipes and she will use them to…[Read more]
Jane commented on the post, Tell Us: What’s Your Worst Doctor’s Office Debacle? 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Wow…. there are several but this is the one that came to mind. Nicole was 17 years old and she had just been approved for SSI and we were given the name of a PCP. It was great as the office was 5 minutes from our house. There I believe were two doctors in this practice, however, there could have been three. The name that we were given was…[Read more]
I think at this moment it is the end of what our “normal” life or so what we thought it was. The anniversary of Nicole’s diagnosis is next week and it always makes me go back to pre diagnosis. I would have rather known about her health issues from birth and while life wasn’t “normal” it was as we thought she was healthy.
It is the end of…[Read more]
I absolutely agree with Larry…. If I focus too long about making a call I don’t want to make or deal with an issue I will procrastinate and talk myself out of it. It is best just to do it. Also, if you camp on this “bomb” you can get discouraged and defeated and find it hard to claw your way back up.
